Episode 49 | Masculinity Identity Crisis

6/6/2018
More
"She founded the movement." Alana that is. She coined the portmanteau "incel" via her blog "Alana’s Involuntary Celibacy Project." The blog was centered around her struggles in her romantic life simply being found desirable. To her chagrin, the state of "involuntary celibacy" resonated with male internet dwellers more than her female peers and so sis was co-opted by the angry and the sexless. This episode we attempt to unpack the trend of discontent and disarray experienced by the mens...

You've missed our cackles, we know. We're back with a #YeWhisper masquerading as a new episode. Between Donald Trump, Donald Glover, and Kanye Omari West we are mentally EXHAUSTED. And ya know we think that's Kanye's issue -- he's tired. He wants to be free of minority angst, of black angst! He wants the peace of mind of being a Calabasas dwelling white man! God bless! We know our best friend often lacks the capacity to articulate cogent thought and so we are here to do it for you. And...

We explore if it's actually a thing? If it's experienced by men or women more? Who's acting more entitled to whom? How does one land in it? How does one exit it? What is its inverse?

The heteros don't have the range and never have! Just kidding. But today we focus on the African American mens and womens; and their dating woes specifically. We particularly examine the subset of African American men who seem to prefer everything but black women, but especially white women. This episode was inspired by the ruminations of James Earl Jones circa 1960s and Harry Belafonte via Eartha Kitt circa 1950s and; though we didn't cover it in this episode, our good man Quincy Jones...

Annie, are you okay? Brother friend, how are you? It's the Two Wise Jawns checking in.. a Mental Health Check if you will. Today we discuss support networks, mental health, emotional trauma, and every day stress. Many of us focus too much on how we present. We tend to neglect how we actually feel. How we're actually processing our everyday experiences - the good and the bad. How we fail to utilize our support networks out of fear of being a burden or appearing 'lesser.' We say drop the...

We've all read or are familiar with Brave New World or 1984 or Citizen Kane or Clockwork Orange and all of the literary classics about the looming presence of "Big Brother."

Is anything truly private anymore? How often do we opt into it knowingly or unknowingly? This and more on this episode of Two Wise Jawns. We also joke...
